During his formal call at Glasgow, IWF Competition Director Mr. Attila Ádámfi met Mr. Greg Warnecke Head of Sports in the Organising Commitee of Glasgow 2014.

The discussions were about how to transform the internal set-up and design of the theatre to make it appropriate to host the event. Talks are in good progress and the Organising Commitee anticipates well in advance all the possible issues before configuring the space. In point of spectator capacity, it can receive 3000 persons. Weightlifting’s special requirements receive maximum focus in accommodating the iconig building to the sport’s competitions.
